Some idiot accelerated his van into a group of pro-Trump volunteers in Jacksonville, Florida. It looks like no one was seriously hurt.
Today in Jacksonville, Florida six Trump Campaign volunteers were intentionally targeted while registering voters. pic.twitter.com/0wzaCYh5ut— Republican Party of Duval County (@DuvalGOP) February 8, 2020
This caught the attention of Ronna McDaniel, and then President Trump:
Here’s more about what happened from the Duval County Republicans:
At approximately 2:45 p.m. a multi-colored brown and gold van driven by what is described as a white male in his 20s or 30s, accelerated into a crowd of volunteers at the Kernan Village shopping center located at 11900 Atlantic Boulevard.
Thankfully, Republican volunteers narrowly avoided being struck by the accelerating van. The driver sped away after making an obscene gesture toward the crowd.
“We are outraged by this senseless act of violence toward our great volunteers,” said Duval GOP Chairman Dean Black. “The Republican Party of Duval County will not be intimidated by these cowards and we will not be silenced.”
“I call on every Republican in our great city to stand up, get involved, and show these radicals that we will not be intimidated from exercising our Constitutional rights.”
The Republican Party of Duval County plans to redouble its efforts to register voters and will continue it’s fight with renewed intensity to re-elect President Donald Trump.
I’m guessing they’re gonna find this idiot pretty quick. It looks like they have photos, and police tend to take this kind of stuff seriously. Especially when the president is tweeting about it.
